Samantha Eggar: how it all began (in Hollywood)

The above article is one of the first press pieces about Samantha Eggar to be published in the United States. Samantha Eggar had only begun acting in 1961 and this short article appeared in American newspapers in January of 1962. It is interesting to note, however, that the actress would not appear in an American movie until several years later and that she would not appear in a Paramount Pictures production until 1970 (The Molly Maguires).

The article below was featured in American newspapers in the summer of 1964 and is an early publicity piece for Samantha Eggar. The following year, she would receive a great deal more press coverage following her Oscar-nominated role in The Collector. This article is actually promoting The Collector, though the film would not be released for another year.
